I've waited a while because I knew Nickle was away, but just saw that he's back online. I'm assuming he's done w/ training for now. I shot rifleman (217) at College Station) AS 5/31 and signed up for the IIT path. It was my 3rd AS & Alonso1 was the SB.

You're all set.

Start reading, check the Instructor Schedule and get signed up to work some events.

I attended the boot camp at Ramseur in May, awesome program.  Son of Martha and Truculent Turtle were the main instructors, Moggat was also instructing.  I shot rifleman and started instructor training, testing to level 3.  I have sent emails to SOM (shot boss) and TT.  I look forward to contributing to the program.

I signed up to be an IIT after the Sierra Vista AS back in April. Sorry I haven't piped up until now. I have a bucket and will bail.

New IIT here, I shot rifleman at the Piru AS 6/20-21 this was my second AS.  I stepped up and took the orange hat, I hope to bring more AS shoots to San Diego.

Also, where do I start looking over the PCs?

Thanks--Robert

I don't think i'm an IIT yet on the forum.  I received the Rifleman Patch and the Orange hat from SamD at the Albuquerque Appleseed a couple weeks ago and then helped out as an IIT at the NRA Whittington Center Appleseed (Raton, NM) this past weekend after my FCSA 50 BMG shoot was over.

Bluefeather was the shoot boss in Albuquerque and Raton.

So please, ad me to the IIT group, if possible.

Hello, Guy,

   I've got a new orange hat and need some admin-type to fix me up!

   You were shoot boss at an Appleseed I attended in Gibsonburg (my home range), Ohio back in late May or so. Thanks again for your service! And thanks in advance for the enhanced access on the forum.

Welcome Postal16, and a big CONGRATS on being California's 100th. Amazing what the right man in the right place at the right time can do.

The fun is only begining and it just keeps getting better, at least that's been my experience.

I saw postal16 shoot his RM on sunday, and "Matt" shoot his RM not long after and then...finally I got mine. Proud to be California rifleman #103 and looking forward to seeing postal16 at shoots in the future. I will work on some of my jokes, seeing as we got so tired and dehydrated we were both laughing at jokes that were not even funny.
PS postal16, are you planning on attending the fresno AS?

I think I should respond here. I shot the August 8/9 Appleseed in Colebrook Ct with a 218. I also shot the August 15/16 Bennington Vt Appleseed with a 224. I took the orange hat and am excited to continue on this path!  O0

Hi all,

  I earned the Rifleman patch at Reno, NV on May 24, and with a score of 224, and decided to take on the orange hat from LayloPro at the Gardnerville, NV AS on August 30.

  I went to the IBC led by Dragonwood at BaldDragon & Jules' house in Sacramento this weekend & learned a TON!

  I'm looking forward to helping more folks become Riflemen & to learn more about our heritage!

     Hello. I am Rich (Necede). I have been trying to apply to be a IIT. Crak told me to fill out a form with
     Nickle but I am unable to find the place I need to be. I would appreciate any assistant you could be
     to me. I have two Rifleman patches and have attended four Appleseeds. The latest Appleseed I
     attended was Broken Bow NE Sept. 12-13 2009.
                            Thanks Rich.
Have gun. Will travel.
